Yesterday after a long day at work, I went to the veterinarian’s to pick up flea medicine for my dog and cat. I really misfired with my vocab! At the counter I said, “I realized that both my cat and dog were out of flea medicine and wanted to pick up the aphrodisiacs before my house got infested.” Aphrodisiacs? I meant to say Prophylactics! The six foot four very manly vet was standing right there listening and grinning. The assistant behind the counter was doubled over. “What’s on your mind?” the Vet said. I blushed, and laughed. “I am really scattered! Wrong vocab word!”
I laughed out loud as I drove home. I should have just said, “Gimme flea juice for my doggie and kitty so my house don’t get buggy.”
What was your latest or greatest blooper? Oh, please share.
